To improve the groundwater level in Haryana, the state government will develop big lakes in Gurugram district, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said on Saturday.

In this direction, the new lakes will be developed in various hill areas like Kasan and Kukdaula and the Damdama Lake’s restoration will also be carried out as it is near extinction.

Mapping will also be carried out for the development of such lakes, Khattar said.

Khattar was speaking at a function to mark the government’s flagship programme Jal Shakti Abhiyan in Gurugram.

Under this campaign, 4,000 ponds will be rejuvenated in the state.
